  • Increased production of tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) is associated with the development of alcoholic liver disease. Culture of RAW264.7 macrophages with 25 mm ethanol for 48 h increased lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated accumulation of tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) peptide and mRNA by 2-fold. We investigated whether chronic ethanol-induced increases in the DNA binding and/or promoter activity of the key transcription factors regulating LPS-stimulated TNFα promoter activity contribute to… CONTINUE READING
